“Four star Mussels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Four stars for the fresh mussels. Also enjoyed the fish and chips (cod). Could have done without the oyster burger and the snippy waitress. Give it a try!

“Great place for a burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

If you are in the mood for a good burger, this is the place. It's on the water if you can get a seat at that end of the restaurant. The decor is funky with lots of stuff to look at. Great for lunch or dinner.

“If you're looking for fresh mussels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

this is the place to go. It's an older tavern with a little bit of a smell that we could not put our fingers on but the people are friendly and the service was good. We've eaten at Toby's several times now and have not been disappointed. The menu has a good selection at a great price. The seafood chowder is excellent. We'll continue to visit Toby's for years to come.

“Mussels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Their mussels are great and so are their burgers. I really liked the lingcod fish and chips. Our friends enjoyed the fried clam strips.
This is definitely a laid back bar place. We went twice. The food was very good both times. The service was great the first time as the waitress who was obviously experienced gave us good advice on the menu. It was all about making things good for us.
The second time the waitress must have recently worked at McD' or is the owner's daughter or just needs some training as she plopped the silver down in front of one of the 6 of us and brought 6 empty plates and put them on the table in a stack. It was all about making it easy for her.I hope she reads this.

“Rude and overrated......and lots of flying insects”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

I've been here a few times during visits to the island for a quick beer & lunch as I shop on the strip. This visit I wasnot ppermitted to bring my sleeping infant at 11am on a Wednesday & had the usual trailer trash waitress scream it was for 21 and up only;) seriously. ...it was week day lunch time not surly late nite bar time. The food is "okay". The flying gnats & fruit flies are a constant in this place - summer or winter. I will never give my $$$ to this joint again. There are way more awesome restaurants in & around Coupeville with better food & prices and that are waaaaayyyyy cleaner.....like front street grill & Christopher's
